View webcam while jogging the printer

It's possible that this has been asked before, but I haven't had any luck searching for it.
I'm coming from Octoprint, so I need to get used to the web interface. I am very happy with the way the macros are used, and the ability to edit config files via the web interface. Integrating a camera via a livestream from an external device (such as a raspberry Pi), though not quite as easy as Octoprint, is perfectly fine by me, and makes sense.
What I can't figure out, is if there's a way to view the web cam from the same screen as the 'jog' buttons. My printer is out in my cold garage, and I only drag my laptop out there when I'm doing serious adjustments/troubleshooting. I prefer to be able to move the printer around, check what's happening via the webcam from my desk. It always made sense to me that Octoprint put the webcam on the same page as the jog buttons for this reason.
I like how configurable DWC is, and I'm hoping theres a way for me to rearrange the screens/tools/views or even create my own layout to provide access to the things that I want all on one page.

@benkitesurfs I frequently open the video stream in another window. That gives me one browser window dedicated to DWC controls, and another dedicated to just the video feed.
Another option would be send gcodes for jogging directly in the "send code" prompt at the top of the DWC page.
